Rushings living in Wood Co. 1870 Census.

On the 1870 Wood Co., Texas Census, my ggrandfather, John Calvin Rushing, b1843, Tishomingo Co., MS, is listed as head of household. Living in his home were two young Rushing men, both give age as 19 (b1851). I can't make out first name of one, but looks like it might be Ignacious Rushing, born in Texas. The other is James Thomas Rushing, born in Mississippi. Neither were brothers of John Calvin. Can anyone idenify them?

Nearby, living by himself, was J. W. Rushing, born abt. 1841 in Tennessee. He also was not a brother to John Calvin. Can anyone indenify him?

(John Calvin was son of Mark Rushing, b1809, Stewart Co., Tennessee and Elizabeth Freeman. Mark was s/o William Rushing, 1783, Anson Co., NC and Jane Nichols.)

I would sure appreciate any ideas or clues, to who these Rushing men were.
